  • Harvest: To obtain high quality oil the olives are directly forced off the tree by hand.  During this phase all necessary precautionary measures are taken to avoid damage to the fruit so it does not get contaminated with soil particles.  To obtain good quality oil the cellular structure of the olive needs to be whole until the moment it gets pressed.  The olives are pressed in the state that they have been picked off the tree, some attached with insects, covered in their natural oil, or even iced.  The breaking of the cell of the flesh predisposes the oil to be contained to the reaction of hydraulics and oxygenation.  The result of such a phenomenon is raised from free acids needing to be released from the fatty acids; from the triglycerides of oil.  When the work in the fields is finished the olives are transported to the oil mill to be worked on.
  • Grinding Mill:The first phase of the manufacturing at the oil mill: grinding of the olives.  For the grinding mill we use the traditional stone machine or grinder.  The grinder operates at a slow and regulated crushing consistency without any significant increase in increments of the temperature of the paste, giving the oil a sweet and harmonious taste.  
  • Press: After the grinding mill follows the pressing mill.  The system of the press of the traditional oil mill was used to obtain oil classifiable as extra-virgin.  A thorough management of this transformation is necessary.  The good management serves to anticipate the fermentation of the olive's paste.  The typical organic defects of the oil obtained with the press are:  odors deriving from the filter plate, fermentation, dirt, water vegetation and rancidity.  To remedy the inconvenience over those previously mentioned is necessary, including the work of the olive of homogenous and elevated quality, but overall the continuous work consistently over 24 hours of the day in order to avoid fermentation of residue of the paste present in the pores of the screen.
  • The Separation: When the work of the press is finished the next step is the separation of the oil from the vegetations water.  The final operation of clarification of the cloudy liquid (the extraction and separation of oil from water) is performed rapidly and in an efficient fashion with the drying and vertical board commonly known as “separator”.  The oil that leaks from the separator/divider is presented cloudy and veiled.
